Where I serve

God has called me to serve college students at Montclair State University, in New Jersey! This fall will be my second year serving there as Team Director.  I'm excited to serve the team and students at Montclair State University to help more souls find the living water that only Christ can give!

My Story

Throughout my 6 years in college, I earned a Bachelor's and Master's in Electrical Engineering.  As I sought my fulfillment in trying to find the perfect job, and stable career, I was also beginning to meet Catholics at the Newman center that challenged me to take more seriously what I said I believed as a Catholic.  This led towards deepening my relationship with Christ through a deeper life of prayer and the sacraments, but also through answering the call to evangelize.  

This call to evangelize came through an invitation from a local youth minister, Joe. Joe deeply invested in those of us at the Flint Newman center, and challenged us to join him in leading retreats for his high school students.  He taught us to lead small groups, share our testimonies, and give talks.  The climax was always praying with the retreatants from our small groups individually during Adoration.  There was such a need for this in our area that our group ended up being asked to lead multiple confirmation and high school retreats each year for churches all over the region. 

This experience of leading students to know Christ in a more personal way on retreat overflowed into my ordinary life during my school and work semesters.  By the time my Master's was coming to a close, I knew that God was calling me to serve him in a more radical way, at least for a time.  Discerning that call eventually led me to FOCUS. I was terrified of the possibility of being a FOCUS missionary, but God called me anyways.  Now, looking towards beginning my fourth year as a missionary, I am so glad that God did call me out of my comfort zone and into the most rewarding adventure of my life so far. 

Your Impact

When I answered the call to join FOCUS, I made the decision to rely on the spiritual and financial support of mission partners to join me in this mission. I've been blessed with the most amazing people who have journeyed with me as I serve on campus. I would be honored for you to join my support team so that we can reach more souls for Christ! I pray you will consider joining my team; please feel free to contact me with any questions or prayer requests you may have!
